The College offers practical training courses that are accredited by the SETAs such as the merSeta and CHIETA. Each practical course is modular or unit standard-based and are designed to support the apprentice or learnership programmes and artisans that need to improve on their skills. The courses prepare the student for the world of work, thus increasing the student’s employment opportunities. Practical skills courses are best suited to those individuals in the trade who wish to further their knowledge in their field of work.

Students from school who are not placed in an apprenticeship (with Mathematics and Science at Grade 12 level) can also complete the CBMT Apprenticeship Training course to further improve their chances of being employed and get them workshop-ready for the apprentice training.

On the successful completion of the courses you may seek employment opportunities in learnerships, apprenticeships, skilled or semi-skilled work in your field of training. After the minimum years of relevant experience you may apply to do a trade test to become a fully qualified artisan.

  • Aerospace industry
  • Manufacturing industry
  • Mining industry
  • Packaging industry
  • Petrol and chemical industry
